Apologies for the spam, but a few more thoughts:
Garry Robins has a really nice 2009 article that describes the multilevel processes operating in covert organizations:
Robins, G. (2009). Understanding individual behaviors within covert networks: The interplay of individual qualities, psychological predispositions, and network effects. Trends in organized crime, 12, 166 – 187.
Hsinchun Chen's group at Arizona operates the Dark Web portal mining jihadi discussion boards. http://ai.arizona.edu/research/terror/
Finally, if you'll permit me to toot my own horn, our team has published some research linking structure and dynamics of clandestine organizations doing "money laundering" in an online game to an offline drug trafficking network.

I am searching for network data on terrorist organizations that I can use for a course project.
I am interested in exploring the ties between terrorist organizations at either a national or international level.
I would also be interested in data that could be used to explore the network that exists within a single terrorist organization.
If anyone has data that they would be willing to share, or recommendations for possible sources of data it would be greatly appreciated.
